Did they take the time, ask a ton of questions?

Most existing heating systems, especially hot water boilers, are over-sized.  What does this mean to you, the owner of that over-sized boiler?  Well, first of all there are the high utility costs monthly. Second, the average lifespan will be significantly reduced due to "short-cycling" or the added wear & tear from starting and stopping more than is needed.

Have you talked with or had another contractor out to look at your system?  Did they spend time measuring your house?  Did they ask you any questions as to how you like your house to feel (warmer/cooler) or exactly what you are trying accomplish with potential changes.

I do.  Plain and simple.  I will actually come to your home/building, take all the necessary measurements and ask a laundry list of questions about your needs.  This is the only way I know how to give you the proper service you deserve.  You may be looking to increase the fuel efficiency of your system by installing a modulating/condensing boiler.  You may be happy with your existing boiler but are hoping to increase the comfort levels in your home.  Maybe you are using a water heater and have a whole bunch of concerns.

I spend a significant amount of time; at no charge to you so you can get a comprehensive estimate and design that will best work for you.  Do they?  Most don't and that's not the only difference but a pretty big one.
